Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday pledged that the Justice Department will “vigorously enforce” laws against “plastic firearms that are undetectable,” despite its opposition to a number of states trying to stop the publication of blueprints for 3D printed guns online.
“We will not stand for the evasion, especially the flaunting, of current law and will take action to ensure that individuals who violate the law by making plastic firearms and rendering them undetectable, will be prosecuted to the fullest extent,” Sessions said in a statement.

Nineteen states and the District of Columbia sued for an injunction, arguing such firearms are untraceable and could easily fall into the hands of criminals or terrorists.
